Default Sorry...another MY2012 LED headlight question/thread.

I have read so many posts about the MY2012 Led headlights that my eyes are bleeding lol. Still having a difficult time finding an answer.

Just need one question answered:
Can the headlights be re-pinned only so that LED strip is 100% bright on it's own and then 50% bright when low beams are on WITHOUT splicing, tapping, and adding relays? If yes, can someone provide me the link to do so please? Just want my lights to work like factory without cutting any wires.

If the answer is no, I'll just leave my lights as is with 50% brightness when low beams are on and off.

Appreciate any help!

Below is a pic with low beams off. Obviously, LED is not 100% bright. (I know...I need to get my DRL's turned off lol).

No and without the relay mod your lights are already 100% all the time

It's 50% because u tapped the 50% wire there's 2 wire 1 is 50% and 1 is 100%. Repinned wire u need to flip the switch to parking light for it to come on. Best way imo is tap the wire directly to ignition fuse so when u start ur car the light comes on automatically and it's super easy to do only takes like 15 mins for both lights. U don't have to cut any wires just remove the 100% brightness wire and the ground wire from the connector and tap the wire to ig2 fuse and ground the other
